I've experienced this on Windows where, a common behaviour starting a movie is Right click -> Open with... > MPlayer.

Under these conditions, even if sub-fuzziness is set to 2 (well, I know it isn't related directly), the subtitles are not loaded automatically because Windows starts MPlayer with another working directory that the parent directory of the movie.


MPlayer Path: C:\Program Files\MPlayer\MPlayer.exe
Movie Path: C:\Movie\m.avi , subtitle C:\Movie\m.sub

If I choose Open With (or make this option permanent with "Always use this application") the working directory of the application would be C:\Program Files\MPlayer and that would be the location where to look for subtitles.

I believe the default behaviour should be: look for subtitles in the path of the movie, no matter what working directory there is.

This most likely applies to other platforms as well besides Windows.

thats odd...
movie path: d:\movies
sub path d:\movies
mplayer path d:\cdrive\mplayer\mplayer.exe

right click > open with > mplayer ... still loads the subtitles from movie dir for me.

likewise just double clicking a file, when mplayer is set to open the filetype.

are you using the gui ? from

can you paste the mplayer -v -frames 1 console output ?
